Liverpool's Equaliser Ruled Out By VAR Due To Diogo Jota's 'Sleeve' Being Deemed Offside

Liverpool had an equaliser controversially ruled out by VAR against Aston Villa at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino thought he had cancelled out Ollie Watkins' opener on the stroke of half-time but when the goal was checked by VAR, it was deemed that Diogo Jota was offside by the smallest of margins.

VAR took its time to determine whether Villa defender Matty Cash had got a touch on the ball and the verdict that he didn't make any contract meant the goal was subsequently chalked off.

Liverpool fans were incensed by the call, which followed on from Wolves' Willian Jose having a first Premier League strike ruled out in a similar situation against Fulham last night.

Jurgen Klopp's face was a picture, while skipper James Milner sought clarification from the official at half-time.
